plan. is there news to be made on this? >> yeah, i think so. senator graham and i have talked, and we have resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we had put together a comprehensive, detailed blueprint on immigration reform. it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration but very much against illegal immigration. our plan just to be quick does four things. first of all, close the border, make sure that's shut. second, make sure that there is a non-forgeable document so that employers can tell who was legal and who was illegal and once they hire someone illegally, throw the book at them. third, on legal immigration -- that will stop illegal immigration in its tracks. third, on legal immigration, let in the people we need, whether they be engineers from our universities, foreign or people to pick the crops. and fourth, a path to citizenship that's fair, which says you have to learn english, you have to go to the back of the line, you've got to have a job, and you can't commit crimes. graham and i are tal
exemplarily work. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: for the first time, president obama weighed in on the scandal that cost david petraeus his job as cia director. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: tomorrow the president sits down with leaders from both parties at the white house. and their big topic, the fiscal cliff. rob, paula, back to you. >> a fly on that wall. the president takes a break today from the fiscal crisis ills to visit some storm damaged areas here in new york. the president will meet with residents and first responders during an afternoon visit. thousand of people on long island are still without power. now more than two weeks after sandy hit. new york's governor has asked for $30 billion in federal money to rebuild after the storm. >> they need it. former cia director, david petraeus, will be on capitol hill tomorrow to testify about the septe
. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and took a break from his momentarily bouts of sanity to say this. >> die trust her in two ways. if she didn't kn
her. >> reporter: we put that to the president. senator graham said he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: and a blistering response to that, senator graham issued a statement to the president saying, quote, don't think for one minute that i don't hold you responsible. i think you failed as commander-in-chief before, during, and after the attack. in other words, there is a major showdown on this still to come. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >> three republican senators hoping to launch a congressional committee, kind of a watergate style to investigate exactly what happened. >>> former cia director david petraeus agreed to testify on capitol hill tomorrow. only about the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. his testimony will be limited to those events only and will not d
understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> okay. so it took senator john mccain about an hour to make it to the s senate floor to offer a response. >> that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> seems like the testosterone-fueled rhetoric over benghazi is sort of getting out of control. former cia operative bob behr joins us this morning. good morning, bob. >> good morning. >> i want to make it clear to our viewers what lawmakers want to figure out. there are three separate hearings about to take place today. this is what they're trying to figure out. one, why didn't the united states increase security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't th
provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> stephanie: i'm telling you he's a fan of american president president. >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> he did mention eating sand. >> stephanie: that's real leadership. that's not sand. >> sound bite: people want leadership mr. president genuine leadership. they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. they're so thirsty for it. they'll crawl through the desert like a mirage. >> cenk: youmirage. >> stephanie: you guys know how this ends. >> they drink the sand because they don't know the difference. >> stephanie: way out of your league bob--what is his last name. >> i've never seen the movie bob woodward? >> you're fired. >> stephanie: bob rumsford, and i'm running for president. >> mr. president, you're going to
by senator graham. for them to see that we have been attacked by enemies of the united states, our embassy and therefore the united states is being attacked, and sunsinstead joining in and seeing who the enemy was to find them and to bring them to justice, they have seen fit to jointly want to destroy the political career of an ambassador that was merely repeating the intelligence that was given to her. this is not what is expected of our heroes. clearly when a family, america, is under attack, you don't really take sides of the attacker and start charging malfeasance to the commander in chief. >> but, mr. rangel, mr. mccain, senator mccain says he wants more information, so he does a press conference. he goes to the floor of the senate. he appears on the "today" show. but he doesn't attend the briefing where he might have got some answers to his questions. >> well, i have to admit that a lot of us are addicted to the television screens rather than to the facts in this case, but i would hope that the senators would reconsider and to recognize that all america could easily join with them if
trying to make it an issue now. >> yeah, he really pushed back on john mccain and lind say graham and called it outragious he said if you have a problem take it up with me. i think he was very testy today. and what he was doing was saying okay you want to make this an issue buddy, dare me to nominate her. it sounded to me, reading between the lines. it is something that he is interested in doing. this is a political fight that is not going to go away. i think one thing that struck me is that the president talked about going after her because she is quote an easy target. what does that mean? is it because she is a woman and is the only one out there using the information that she had? it is interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president is talking about. >> there is still so many thing that is we don't know. is it surprising that they are going after secretary of state rice and not clinton? >> no, i don't. right now, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him and think he has the experience. i don't think it has to do with her womanhood.
% of romney's base are white people in this country. senator lindsey graham came out few months ago said, i think we're running out of angry white men. we have to expand our base. when you think about in terms of a ground game who is going to turn out, you do support obama much more likely than what you think about going out for free slice of pizza being motivated by president delivering you pizza. to a phone call or the candidate you don't see billionaires who are profiting from the policies but mitt romney is that are going to benefit from going out getting free pizza and door knocking. there is a different level of engagement because obama is -- >> does anybody have particular aspect of the ground game how it affects women voters? is it going to get more women out than men? how does that work? >> the ground game is extremely important in every election it's important to both parties. the fact is, mitt romney is in ohio, yes, trying to motivate the people that most likely go are going to vote for him reach few undecided voters that are still there. but first lady was in virginia on friday
stress over. graham spanier was arraigned today on charges he tried to cover up allegations that jerry sandusky was sexually abusing boys on the school campus. among the charges, obstruction of justice, endangering the welfare of children and purgery. bail is $125,000. but it is unsecured, so that means he doesn't have to pay it unless he fails to show up for a court date. he will not be allowed to travel outside the state without the court's permission. >>> after meeting with with the president, one militant group in mali is urging other groups to start a political dialogue and it's an important group, at least from our understanding when we were covering the story. the armed group is one of many to have taken over the northern part of mali. what does that mean? state department spokesman welcomed the announcement that says the group has only talked the talk and need to walk the work and work on a deal. it's been 461 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. it is time to ask what are we going to do to get it back. and now, our fourth story. president obama won re-election last
. >> republican senator lindsay graham on "face the nation" this morning, molly ball, take a listen and see what he said on the other side. >> we have a national security failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi, before, during and after the attack, if general petraeus doesn't testify. from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress. >> molly, how is this benghazi back and forth likely to work out in light of these petraeus developments? >> well, i think we have to remember how much we still don't know. we still, i mean the petraeus story just breaking on friday, and details still coming out about what was discovered and how. i mean we originally thought that this was more about classified information and now it seems like it's more about harassment. i think we have to be sort of humble in the face of all the facts that we still don't have. i think a.b. is right that at this point, they look like two separate stories. it doesn't look like they're entangled, except to the extent that petraeus is a pl
of a sudden republicans and democrats are talking about it. lindsey graham, he's trying to get together with chuck schumer to see if there's an opportunity. are you in favor right now of major legislation that would deal with comprehensive immigration reform, securing the border but also having a pathway to citizenship for some of those illegal immigrants who are in the country? >> wolf, several things. absolutely i am for comprehensive approach. let's stop making this a political issue. let's solve this issue. does have to include securing the borders. the president said he was going to present a proposal. let him present that proposal so we aren't negotiating with ourselves. but we in the republican party need to be clear that we welcome folks that want to come to this country and follow the rules and work hard and make this a better stronger country. our legal immigration system is broken. we need to dramatically increase the number of people we allow in this country legally. it's good for them, it's good for our country. right now our immigration policies aren't good for our country
rumbling on that topic. >> bill: the phrase i see a lot today is broken brand. lindsay graham was one of them. schmidt and stevens said we have to look at this republican party and our outreach when you look at, for example president obama getting 93% of the black vote. 71% of the hispanic vote. 55% of the female vote. 60% of the young vote. isn't this -- let's say to be polite, this conversation is going to be taking place within the republican party if not a real war right? >> yes. it could be a conversation. it could be a war. it could be be something in between. here's my sense of it right now. presently. i think the first thing republicans have to ask themselves a threshold strategic question which is separate from outreach. do you want to be a presidential party or do you want to content yourself with being a house majority party? and possibly competitive in senate races? now, that's a strategic choice you could make. you could say look, we have the 2010 census redistricting. we have a certain number of seats.
. >> stephanie: wow. we have been talking about the demographics. i think lindsay graham said it they are running out of old angry white guys aren't they? >> it's what i told y'all, the first time i ever made a prediction in public or private, because -- of course -- >> stephanie: what is the point of saying -- >> the reason that he won was go tv. and they had an organization. i got a call -- i came in out of the mountain at 2:00 on tuesday to vote, and i got my first in my history my first old fart call. they called me -- they called me from obama and wanted to know if i had a problem getting to the polls, and wanted to come by and pick me up. >> stephanie: fortunately you don't have a very distinctive voice. >> oh, god -- no they just did a great job. and last week i was counting on -- they set up at virginia tech that the lines were two and a half to three hours students coming out to vote. >> stephanie: yep. >> but a lot of it has to do of course, your show -- >> stephanie: it's mostly my show. >> the conservatives control the radio airwaves and cable t

"that's ridiculous. >> at some point, he could stop breathing from too much of narcotics and we will be doing cpr. >> where is sergeant robert yates today? >> we ended up following him after the plane ride for many months. he ended up entering himself into an innovative program at walter reed where they ended up using acupuncture, meditation, other techniques to wean him off all the drugs he had been on. through this program, he was able to walk out of walter reed on his own two feet. i really commend the military for two things. one in, allowing us to tell this story, both the good and bad, and for recognizing this problem. by recognizing that there is this problem of ove
do you back up the white house because it is all over the map. senator graham weighed in. >> no affect of an affair on national security. i think we need to move on but the end of the day, we have to get to the bottom of benghazi. >> brian: he said it is time for petraeus to testify. >> steve: he's now a private citizen. he could volunteer to and so why does he. >> gretchen: could he be subpoened? i think that is what is going to happen dependog what they need. more information from hillary clinton or david petraeus. >> brian: bee have more pages to discuss. friend and family and workers gathered to will remember a second grade teacher and her husband killed in an explosion in indianapolis. ♪ "amazing grace". ♪ how sweet the sound. >> gretchen: jennifer longworth taught for years and she and her husband lived in one of the homes that was destroyed by the blast and rocked the indianapolis neighborhood. >> i out she cried. -- i cried. >> hundreds of people were forced from their homes. investigators say it could be weeks before they know why. >> thousands of people in l
of the senators now, graham said that she's interested in immigration reform. they have to get involved in serious legislation to make sure that something happens and weapon recognize that we have particularly in the latino community, are active, powerful and influential and they're going to do something about it. i see a lot of change this year. it's a real awakening on some of these issues. as for the fiscal cliff we're going to be able to negotiate and we're going to be able to do something about a combination of taxes, and programs, discretionary programs. so i'm looking forward to the negotiations. >> i hope so, congresswoman. it's interesting. i'm sure you've seen clips on t.v. of george bush talking about mandates and political capital that he earned. obviously, what the president truly has a mandate. this is two electoral land slides i mean landslides in a row. he said obviously, you know, basically this question over and overcame up and americans voted for, you know, the rich to pay their fair share right? >> caller: that's absolutely true. it was very clear in this election that the poin
big stake in the company and mark andree son and donald graham said they're only selling as much as they need to to cover their taxes. that's been so much attention on these lock-up periods. employees could sell so now there seems to be kind of a big sigh of relief. back to you. >> with yelp not too long ago, additional proof this can be done. a lot of shares coming to market and yet the price rises. thanks, julia. >>> gary komco kaminski has tho. >> i was just standing in central park now i'm on top of a building. magic of tv. julia talked about facebook. i've been working on putting some data together. i hope to bring it to you maybe next week but i want to sort of let people know, i think this is what is happening right now with facebook. it's very simple. we talk about the closet indexes all the time. we talk about the benchmark huggers. in fact, the fact that facebook is not owned by closet indexers has put a lot of people in the mind set of wanting to own this stock into the end of the year for the simple reason it is not overowned. it not owned by these people. not accumul
that senator graham and i laid out and brought structure -- >> 2007. >> yeah. last time and what happened was obviously the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. that's at the top of the list. because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls, 2/3 of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform. along those lines. you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to believe they would agree with that proposal. second thing we have to do, both candidates, president obama, governor romney talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about. the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed the way power plants have to function. that plus the free market force o
. there is another factor for 2014. among those up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss -- if you are mitch mcconnell four years ago, but would have had unanimity that theh waas king of republican party in kentucky. there was not a contest for the leader. then 2010, he put every resources could, every attempt to keep randpaul from winning the republican nomination and failed miserably. if you are looking at this from mitch mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromise. if you're john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nominations for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor was beaten from one end of the state to the other in the primary by ted cruz because it was a moderate. and you h
